The most wonderful time of the year...

in Edmonton, is definitely Fringe Season! 

When else do you have your choice of over 150 different theatre productions, street performers from around the world, and so many green onion cakes/mini donuts it makes my tummy hurt just thinking about it!

2 Times the Fun

With my boyfriend gone to Europe for two weeks and with work being extremely slow, I have a lot more free time on my hands! 

What am I gonna do with all this free time, you ask...

I have two Fringe shows that I am working on this year. Bells Are Ringing with Plain Janes Theatre, directed by Kate Ryan and Kefa's Metamorphosis with Selchie Theatre, directed my Keltie Brown! I couldn't be more excited. Both shows consist of amazing casts, I am honoured to work with so many talented artists!

Stay tuned for show times, more info to come!
